By far his most personal and vivid collection of work to date, HEAVY MENTAL is Greg Mike unleashed, free to explore new territories. Colors bend and blend while lines and images collapse and coalesce twisting the world inside out and upside down.
Memories collide with the immediate moment while the wreckage is shaped by meditations on the future. Images and concepts are threaded together and propelled by the spark of instinct and intuition. There are explosions, there is fire. There is a pulse of pure electricity, uncoiled lightning, that charges the entire body of work with kinetic chaos.
This is evolution in action. This is not the end product, this is the process. No lanes, no lines, no roads, no right, no wrong–this is something entirely different.
HEAVY MENTAL is alive. The pieces breathe and seethe, they scream out with emotion and invention, barreling forward deep into the unknown.

Facebook recently reached out to commission a large mural for their ATLANTA office. After a initial meeting with their team and a studio brainstorm session I worked up a sketch which incorporated a number of my characters and the 8 letters that comprise their name. 2 Weeks later the project was complete.
They will be transforming this area into an outdoor putting green where their team and clients can catch some fresh air and clear their minds while playing a few rounds of golf with Larry Loudmouf and Friends.

For the past 5 years we have been traveling down south from Atlanta to Miami for one of the largest art fairs in the USA. Seems like just yesterday we teamed up with a few friends from the OVERTHROW collective to start an event called, BASEL CASTLE. Fast forward 4 years we are just a few weeks away to BASEL CASTLE 4 at a new larger location in downtown Miami, GRAND CENTRAL PARK. We are extremely excited for this special addition as we have a number of new artists both Musically and Visually we are joining forces with. With Visuals from artists from across the globe and music that covers all genre's this is an event you don't want to miss. The ABV studio has been non-stop over the past few weeks working on all the new ART INSTALLATIONS that will debut at the event. Looking forward to catching up in MIAMI! See you there..
